Interlude- somewhere between the leap and the landing. Itís a jazz solo, the riffing, the unexpected improvisation. Rooted in a Belgian theme, Interlude soars from a second fermentation with our own Brettanomyces yeast. Then takes five in French oak wine barrels that once cellared fine Merlots and Sirahs. And then bottle conditioning. In all, an outrageous effort to make a bottle of beer. But then, if you prefer to swing with magnificent red wine notes and funky farmhouse flavors dancing in the undercurrents of a crisp, remarkable brew, then Interlude has that thing. Cíest le gout, toujours! Itís the taste that is always an adventure.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear reddish copper orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished quickly into a thin layer of residue that lasted throughout and produced some excellent sticky lacing. The aroma had a Farmhouse funkiness to it, with a sweaty grain malt, some wild yeast and had notes of sour grapes, red wine and a nice woody oak. The taste was sweetly acidic, quite tart and very fruity right off and then became sweetly sour with a strong wine characteristic and a hint of wood at the end. The flavor stayed with you for a nice long time after the swallow, allowing for a nice sour grape finish. Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body and very dry in texture, like a nice Merlot with a fizzy carbonation. Overall a very unique tasting strong ale, one like I have never tasted in the past, but definitely plan to do so again in the future.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 18, 2016
2013 Vintage. Pours a rich copper amber hue with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a pleasant mix of composted fruit, vinous barrel funk and some soft belgian candy. Palate follows with notes of orange rind, papaya, wet oak, honeycomb, some earthy leather and complex fruit lingers with a bit of bitterness and tannins on the finish.

Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ďEpic beer Tasting 2016Ē. Dark orange, little head. Nose is dull metallic orange, grainy, big sweetness. taste is sweet orange peel, bit metallic, candy, overly sweet, big sugar, improved a bit over time, got more orange peel, overall largely a big slab of sweetness. Body is fizzy & metallic. Another Allagash beer where I donít entirely the love. Didnít get the French oak & brett, brett is lost in the sweetness.

JDBaker11058 (1963) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2016
appearance: hazy golden-orange-red, with a finger of creamy light tan head. aroma: red wine vinegar, green apple skins, champagne-y yeast, sharp-sweet funk. taste: tart, slightly sour bite of raspberry and stone fruit up front, then some vinous, jammy notes, followed by a peppery funk of brett. finish: funkier as it warms, as the sharpness of the brett becomes more plasticky; lingering tart vinous notes too. notes: Superbly well-hidden alcohol; great lively palate. Funky, tart, and complex. Birthday gift from Christian, 2016.

75 cl bottle. 10/2014.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Nice apricot and orange notes, sourish peachy notes, yeast and spices. Spicy flavor, sour apricot, gooseberries, some rowan berries and bretta yeast, the red wine barrel is quite distant. Very nice sourness here, somewhat fruity too.

Clear, orange gold. Almost no tan head. Funky, gym socks and basement, some deeper fruits. Quite sour, some hops bitterness, nice sweet base. Lightly chewy, some effervescence, reasonably acidic. Quite long finish. Pretty great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
